2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy blonde ale with a solid sheet of bone whites. Nose is mostly dry with some dust, grain, a bit of resin and citrus - but faint. Flavor is fairly tame with some initial bitterness and then some wheat flavor and some nuttyness that reminds me of Belgian yeast. Thin body et high. Biting carb. Decent beer, nothing special.

750mL bottle drunk 5/20/15
Another great appearance from Jester king; huge, fluffy white head is very well-retained atop a ripe peach-colored body with high clarity, leaving sediment in the bottom.
Pure, wonderfully done amarillo in the nose. Heavily floral with just a touch of sweet tangerine and light lime. They are quite uninterrupted by the malts, which, on account of the very low acidity, need very little sweetness to balance. House yeast adds a touch of minerality that is very enjoyable, almost like warm well water. Soft orange blossom-like aromatics continue as it warms while just a touch of light caramel emerges from the cara malt.
Very similar flavor profile, hop-forward but with a complete lack of acidity. Very impressive. Wheat gives a softness to the body, though there is a bit of hardness from the carared (wish they’d left that out, but then, I pretty much never like cara malts in light to mid strength beers). Other than that, it’s just a flowery, soft, incredibly drinkable beer with much more flavor than you’d ever expect for its size. No alcohol or flaws. Everything I’ve had from these guys that hasn’t been oxidized to all hell has been outstanding.

An interesting ale collaborated with a great brewery. Nice aroma and flavor of wheat and floral hips bitterness. Golden and copper color with a light but dry palate. Felt like it needed a little better balance though.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear light/medium yellow with a large fluffy white head. Sticky, soapy lace.
Fragrant, spicy, floral aroma.
The flavor is somewhat dry, spicy, softened.
Easy drinking, but nothing really going on that interests me.

750ml bottle thanks to Errl! Pours semi clear orange with big 3 finger head and tons of bubbles. Nose is nice mix of earthy floral fruit, apple, grain, citrus, orange. Taste has nice light body, mixed earthy farm grains, good fruitiness and soft mouthfeel, overall a bit rounded in profile with nothing really jumping out, though perhaps I sat on this bottle too long, still a pleasant easy drinker with nice soft citrus and grain and just a touch of doughy spice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a hazy honey color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet fruit, herbal hops and wheat. The finish is fruity up front with a grassy hops and wheat aftertaste. Above average overall.
